STATEHOUSE - The Indiana Chamber of Commerce's annual Legislative Vote Analysis ranked Rep. Rebecca Kubacki (R-Syracuse) as having a high rating in pro-jobs and pro-economy votes for the 2011 session.

Rep. Kubacki scored a 92 percent for supporting pro-jobs and pro-economy legislation.

"Getting Hoosiers back to work has been my focus since day one at the Statehouse," said Rep. Kubacki. "The legislative body has put tools in place to expedite Indiana's recovery which is evident from our pro-business environment."

The Chamber's Vote Analysis is produced after every legislative session. The legislator's scores are determined by bills and select amendments' impact on the state's economy.

"We dedicated a large portion of our time to carefully crafting legislation that will lay the foundation for job creation for years to come," said House Speaker Brian Bosma (R-Indianapolis).

Some pieces of legislation included in the analysis that the Indiana Chamber highlights was: HEA 1004, which increases access to start-up capital for Indiana businesses in addition to lowering the corporate income tax rate; HEA 1006, which promotes economic development locally and regionally; and HEA 1007, which allows enhanced abatement schedules and hiring incentives to encourage local job growth.

"The policies enacted this session will strengthen Indiana's economy and provide a model for the rest of the country to follow," said Rep. Kubacki. "
